The Frictionary # 277

Here is another page taken from The Frictionary:

2686. Discretion is the polite word for hypocrisy. (Christine Keeler)

2687. Buddhism is not a creed, it is a doubt. (G.K. Chesterton)

2688. Achilles was gay. He broke a heel and died. (ANT)

2689. I won't brag about having taste, but my distaste is very trustworthy. (Jules Renard)

2690. Democracy is based on the idea (among others) that nobody is more entitled to govern than the others. So, it is perfectly democratic to elect imbeciles. (Pierre Foglia)

2691. Fear is like the microwavable version of respect. It doesn't taste as good, but it's much easier to make. (Jack Collins)

2692. Women can fake orgasms, we (men) can fake listening. (Alonzo Bodden)

2693. Because he has been taught that solitude is a disease, man has transformed himself into a turtle with antennae who carries his office on his back. (Charles Dantzig)

2694. The hypothalamus controls the "Four F's": fighting, fleeing, feeding, and mating. (?)

2695. Pay attention to your enemies, for they are the first to discover your mistakes. (Antisthenes*)
